About Cerbos

Cerbos is on a mission to make authorization simpler to implement and manage, thus freeing up product teams to focus their efforts on building their core product and drive business value.

Authorization is a critical aspect of any software product, and it's essential to get it right. However, the process of implementing, maintaining, and scaling access control logic is time-consuming, complicated, and messy.

That's where Cerbos comes in. As an open source, language-agnostic authorization solution, Cerbos seamlessly scales from a prototype to global deployment. Cerbos users can be up and running in minutes rather than weeks.

We are a group of passionate, globally distributed professionals, working together to solve the complex authorization challenges for our users. We completed multiple rounds of funding from world class investors and are planning for the future.

Our Culture

Our mission is to make authorization easy.

We believe that the layers of software will continuously be decoupled to reduce duplicative efforts.

Our goal is to make Cerbos the go-to authorization layer solution for implementing roles and permissions.

We prioritize the needs of our users. We are friendly and caring towards everyone. We assume best intent.

We have a strong engineering mindset. We are confident in our abilities, yet humble. As a team, we hold strong beliefs but are open to change with new information based on data.

We are self starters; we take initiative, build, seek feedback and iterate fast. We work in the open, cohesively, and asynchronously.

We are determined and dedicated to solving the challenges ahead of us.
